1. Daffodils: What announces spring has arrived more pronouncedly than the bright yellow and cheerful daffodil! These flowers may look fragile, but they are resilient enough to stand up to less than ideal Maryland weather conditions. Besides the traditional yellow, they are available in many varieties of color and texture. Though they are past their prime this season, you can plant bulbs for a beautiful addition to next spring's landscape.
2. Pansies: Pansies may be small, but they pack a punch when you plant them in containers or bed edges. They do well in direct sunlight, but can survive cool overnight temperatures just fine. They come in every color of the rainbow and add bright spots of color.
3. Primroses: Primroses are one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring, and they make a lovely addition to any garden. There are hundreds of varieties of primroses, but some of the most common are the Evening Primrose and the Orchid Primrose - featuring purple and red spear-shaped flowers (a popular Baltimore favorite!).
4. Impatiens: These flowers are the best choice for shady areas. They will survive in partial and even heavy shade and come in several colors. They grow quickly in either containers or soil and make for a great ground cover to fill in larger flower beds.
5. Marigolds: Marigolds are among the hardiest of flowers, and they can survive in both direct sunlight and poor soil. You may think all marigolds resemble tight balls of deep orange, there are other types like “Super Hero Spry” and “Durango Flame” which have impressive large blooms.
